Canadian School District Destroys Over 4,700 Books With ‘Negative’ Messages​

 Canadian School District Destroys Over 4,700 Books With ‘Negative’ Messages

OBIDEN IS BOLD FACE LIAR- HARRIS JUST AS BAD- THEY BACK THE CANCEL CULTURE

By Megan Williams | September 10, 2021


An Ontario school district burned about 30 books in a reconciliation ceremony for Indigenous peoples in 2019 and has since destroyed over 4,700 books across the district, reported the National Post.

The francophone school board that organized the book burning now regrets its decision after receiving “sharp condemnation from leaders nationwide,” wrote the Post Millennial.

The project, called Redonnons à la terre –”give back to the Earth,” in English — was meant “to make a gesture of openness and reconciliation by replacing books in our libraries that had outdated content and carried negative stereotypes about First Nations, Métis and Inuit people,” school board spokesman Lynne Cossette told the National Post.

Cosette explained that the school board formed a committee with “many Aboriginal knowledge keepers and elders.” They “participated and were consulted at various stages, from the conceptualization to the evaluation of the books, to the tree planting initiative.”

The ashes from the burned books were used as fertilizer to plant a tree.

“We bury the ashes of racism, discrimination and stereotypes in the hope that we will grow up in an inclusive country where all can live in prosperity and security,” said a video that was played to students before the ceremony, reported Radio Canada.

However, the school board was criticized by many for its so-called “educational” decision to burn outdated and offensive books.

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole tweeted, “A Conservative government will be committed to reconciliation. But the road to reconciliation does not mean tearing down Canada. I strongly condemn the burning of books.”

Since the 2019 ceremony, the Conseil scolaire catholique Providence school district has updated its school libraries by destroying over 4,700 books that don’t have “positive and inclusive messages about the diverse communities within our schools,” the Post Millennial reported.

Bloc leader Yves-François Blanchet said at a press conference, “We don’t burn books. We expose ourselves to history, we explain it, we demonstrate how society has evolved or must evolve,” according to the National Post.

i wonder if he requested those books be re-printed to maintain that level of history...if he believes so strongly, why not demand they be reprinted?

now that would be the story,

When books are outlawed, only outlaws will have books.

Oh they absolutely are....remember the huge endless rows of books stacked to the ceiling in libraries of our childhood? Gone. Replaced with computer screens, DVD rentals and open spaces filled with the local bums. Libraries are nearly dead.

I will post a picture of the state capitol library next time im there.
